RIYL: Rachel Grimes, Max Richter, Balmorhea and all the big names that are filed under neo-classical

Label: Quarterstick Records

I thought “this will never happen,” but here it is – Rachel’s Systems/Layers from 2003 on vinyl for the first time. There’s a limited white version and a normal black one. One of the most neo-classical records ever released. Beautiful strings combined with piano and some percussion. Very emotional and beautiful.

The Details

“Brilliant… A modern soundtrack to city life—an aural survival pack that pulls out moments of delicate beauty from all the s**t and cacophony. Don’t leave home without it.” - MOJO

“Sonic layers, classical elements, pieces that seem unfinished, no guitars - and somehow it all works.”
- Los Angeles Times

“The avant-classical Rachel’s is our connection to beauty, to clarity and simplicity, to warmth that radiates from a single gesture.” - Magnet

“Undeniable power and grace” - Pitchfork

Avant-garde chamber group Rachel's present the vinyl debut of their last full-length album systems/layers on Quarterstick Records.

Originally released only as a CD (in 2003), this double vinyl LP issue of systems/layers also includes the vinyl debut of the Rachel's 2005 CD EP, Technology Is Killing Music. Packaged in a gatefold album jacket with printed inner sleeves, designed and layed out by Louisville native Jeremy deVine (of Temporary Residence fame).
